5.1 NGINX

This is just an example, we assume that you have prior experience setting up NGINX Vhosts!


For further instructions, please refer to the official NGINX documentation provided by Laravel.


To ensure proper security, access to certain configuration files must be prevented.

Example configuration:

server {
    listen 80;
    listen [::]:80;
    server_name example.com;
    root /path/to/example.com;

    add_header X-Frame-Options "SAMEORIGIN";
    add_header X-Content-Type-Options "nosniff";

    index index.php;

    charset utf-8;

    location / {
        try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?$query_string;
    }

    location = /favicon.ico { access_log off; log_not_found off; }
    location = /robots.txt  { access_log off; log_not_found off; }

    error_page 404 /index.php;

    location ~ \.php$ {
        fastcgi_pass unix:/var/run/php/php7.4-fpm.sock;
        fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME $realpath_root$fastcgi_script_name;
        include fastcgi_params;
    }

    location ~ /\.(?!well-known).* {
        deny all;
    }


location ~ ^\. {
deny all;
}

location ~ \.sqlite$ {
deny all;
}

location ~ \.env$ {
deny all;
}

location ~ /\.htaccess {
allow all;
}

}
